    The importance of testing additive manufacturing materials

    The importance of testing additive manufacturing materials

    3D Systems recently reported the completion of comprehensive testing on the newest materials for its Figure 4 system. For some users, materials testing data is insufficient for their needs. I interviewed Marty Johnson, technical fellow, at 3D Systems about material testing and the needs of the design engineer. Listen in as Marty Johnson discusses developments in testing and how they affect prototyping and production materials.

    How data analysis can shift 3D simulation into the fourth dimension

    How data analysis can shift 3D simulation into the fourth dimension

    By 2023, everyone will be working in the fourth dimension, say analysts at OSIsoft. A four-dimensional model is a 3D simulation cross-referenced with time. Digital twins, a recent development enabled by the Internet of Things, are essentially the first models of 4D. We spoke with Richard Beeson, CTO at OSIsoft to learn more about this shift from 3D simulation to 4D

    3D printing at the micro level

    3D printing at the micro level

    Recently a couple of stories have surfaced about using 3D printing/additive manufacturing for parts that are microns in size. One of these companies is based in Israel. Now, a company out of Boston, Boston Micro Fabrication (BMF) has introduced a microscale 3D printer. I interviewed John Kawola, CEO of BMF, to discuss this trend.

    What HP has learned about working with 3D printing

    What HP has learned about working with 3D printing

    Listen as Dave Woodlock, Market Development Manager at HP’s 3D printing group discusses lessons learned when incorporating 3D printing into your business as a product and as a tool. Notes Woodlock, many assume that what holds 3D printing back in terms of greater implementation is material, hardware, and so on. But what HP has found is that change management is a larger issue that executives must address. Woodloock also takes a look at 3D printing’s benefits to saving time in getting product to market faster, and in how this technology will expand the role of the engineer in design and manufacturing.
